HOUSTON (AP) - The Texans needed a win over Baltimore to enter their bye with the AFC's best record.
The lopsided victory not only gave them that, it clearly separated them from the second-place Ravens and the rest of the conference.
Still, the Texans (6-1) know they can't be too impressed with what they've accomplished so far.
Star receiver Andre Johnson says: "You can't look at the big picture because when you get too far ahead of yourself, that's when bad things happen."
But with a dominant defense allowing the second fewest points in the AFC coupled with the second-highest scoring offense in the conference, they've become the team to beat in the AFC.
